Now the Special English Program American Stories. Our Story is called the Diamond Lens. It was written by Fitz-James O'Brien. Today we will hear the second and final part of the story. Here is ???? with part two of the Diamond Lens.

When I was a child, someone gave me a microscope. I spent hours looking through that microscope, exploring natural tiny secrets.
As I grew up, I became more interested in my microscope than in people. When I was 20 years old, my parents sent me to New York city to study medicine.
I never went to any of my classes, instead I spent all my time and a lot of my money trying to build the perfect microscope.
I wanted to make a powerful lens that would let me see even the smallest patch of life, but all my experiments failed.
Then, one day I met a young man who lived in the apartment above mine, Jew Simon told me about a woman who could speak to the dead. When I visited Madam Valpus, she let me speak to the spirit of the man who invented the microscope. The spirit of untown Lavin Hook told me how to make a perfect lens from a diamond of 140 carats. But where could I find a diamond that big?
When I returned home, I went to Simon's apartment. He was surprised to see me and tried to hide a small object in his pocket. I wanted to discover what it was, so I brought two bottles of wine to his apartment. We began to drink. By the time we had finished the first bottle, Simon was very drunk. "Simon, I know you have a secret. Why don't you told me about it?"
Something in my voice must have made him feel safe. He made me promise to keep his secret. Then he took a small box from his pocket. When he opened it, I saw a large diamond shape likeed a rose, a pure white light seemed come from deep inside the diamond. Simon told me he had stolen the diamond from a man in South America. He said it weight exactly 140 carats. Excitment shock my body. I could not believe my luck. On the same evening that the spirit of Lavin Hook told me the secret of the perfect lens, I find the diamond I need to create it. I decided to steal Simon's treasure.
